    "One Hundred Dollars For One Kiss
    Detroit, Mich., July 29.— Hiram S. Lapham, a furniture dealer and large property owner of this city, was fined $100 to-day for assault. The evidence showed that while calling on one of his tenants, Mrs. Carrie Sackett, for rent, he seized her about the waist and kissed her squarely on the lips. Mrs Sackett was angry. Her husband, who entered in time to witness the osculatory assault, beat Lapham and dragged him into court."
